Mysterious Quran Found 18 Meters Deep in Ocean off Mauritius Coast



Footage of a copy of the Quran, the Islamic holy book, found by a South African scuba diver and photographer, Ian Haggerty, at a depth of 18 meters beneath the ocean’s surface off the coast of Mauritius, has gone viral.

What is being considered as intriguing is that the opened pages revealed verses 64 of Surah Al Araf, recounting the story of the floods during the time of Prophet Nuh (Noah) and his people.

The unexpected discovery occurred during one of Haggerty’s routine diving expeditions.

“I thought it was a magazine. I paged to the front to see if there was a cover, but there was nothing, so I left it open in the same way I found it.”

Ian Haggerty is deciding if he wants to move to Mauritius permanently.

The diver, apparently captivated by the significance of the finding, initially uploaded the video on his TikTok account, but since then millions of people shared it. It has got more than 10 million views already on social media.

He worked as a safety, health and environment practitioner on a contract basis at Sasol in Secunda before deciding to explore Mauritius and see if he wants to move here permanently.

“I came here to help manage a scuba diving school with the possibility of taking it over and living here in the long term,” Haggerty told Ridge Times.

Verse 64 of Surah Al Araf in the Quran is a part of the story of Prophet Nuh (Noah) and his people, highlighting the divine message that Noah received from God.

“None of thy folk will believe save him who hath believed already. Be not distressed because of what they do,” it states.

The story of Prophet Nuh and the flood is a significant narrative in Islamic tradition, illustrating themes of faith, obedience, and the consequences of rejecting God’s message.
